Lumenia Webinar: Successful ERP – Choose your Project Manager carefully!
Inadequate project management is one of the most common causes of ERP project failure. ERP project management is a highly complex role, and the project manager will face challenges that are unique to an ERP project.
The role involves a combination of detailed day-to-day management of the internal ERP project team, co-ordination with the ERP vendor consulting team and periodic reporting on project progress to the project steering group. Selecting the right person to manage your project is key to it’s success.
Join Ursula Browne and Paul Muspratt from Lumenia Consulting as they share their views on the criticality of the ERP project management role. They will talk about some of the key challenges the project manager will face and the skills and experience required to address those challenges. The webinar will provide a platform for questions and discussion on the topic. If you are preparing to implement ERP, be sure to join us for this session.
